    Each month, the report also contains a list of the top ten users. Many of these users are clinical trials coordinators and managers, so we assume that this is due to printing out patient information sheets and consent forms. We will be reaching out to some of these high level users over the next few months to explore the possibility of moving to paperless consent instead. Please feel free to initiate these discussions with Sarah Piper or Vicki Allen if you are also concerned with your printing usage levels.
